Hi,  alas I can't get any of these pdf files to open either in my browser or as a download (states they are 0kb file size). 

Possibly a comparability issue with uptodate reader???

If anyone can help be much appreciated; wanted to look at Thorn Raven Sport info.

Thanks, Tim

Hi Tim

I have emailed you a copy of the brochure pdf file, hopefully it will work.

Cheers

Alternative server for RAVEN SPORT TOUR as of 31Dec2016: http://web.archive.org/web/20091229040217/http://www.sjscycles.com/thornpdf/ThornRavenSportTourBroHiRes.pdf

I would have added this edit to the initial entry, but the software limits post size and that is at the limit.

The Internet Wayback Machine's servers sometimes go down for extended periods. If you can't find a given brochure at the links I listed, check to see if you can download one from another snapshot date, as different snapshots are stored in different servers. When you find the reference you want, it is best to download the PDF to your desktop, as there's no telling when a given server will go offline and the reference can be unreachable for some time.

All the best,

Dan.

Thanks for this Dan, and for all the Forum work you have done in the background in 2016. You have guided a lot of people to the info they were looking for, as well as helping with often complex technical cycle issues.

Best wishes for 2017 to you, and to all members.

Thanks for collating all of this information, it's been a really useful resource.

Perhaps I've missed it, but has anyone posted a time series showing the different frames that Thorn have produced along with their approximate lifespans. I was also wondering if anyone had any information on the frame numbering schemes used on the bottom brackets and how this has changed (e.g. can this easily be used to date frame).

Cheers.

No, not yet.

Frame size is included in each serial, but beyond that, I don't know the numbering scheme. Perhaps Dave Whittle can help us out here. It would surely be useful in more closely dating frames.

Good questions!

Best,

Dan.
